Bowling is a game where you roll a ball down a narrow lane in an attempt to knock over ten pins. There are professional bowlers and tournaments, but most bowling games are casual contests between friends. You’ll go down to the nearest bowling alley, rent a few lanes and a pair of ugly shoes, maybe grab a few beers, and play a couple of games. Bowling is easy to learn, but hard to master. Professional bowlers try to get twelve strikes in a row for a perfect game. Casual bowlers just try to keep the ball out of the gutter and feel satisfied with the occasional strike. The most difficult thing about bowling is learning how to keep score. Luckily most bowling alleys have computers that keep track for you. Bowling is fun on the Wii, but it’s better in real life. The sound of powerful strike is one of the most satisfying sounds in sports. But not many things are as agonizing as a gutter ball and I bowl a lot more of those.
